Sihanoukville, Cambodia: Traveling for 20 Dollars a Day – Ep 11


I visit Sihanoukville, Cambodia – including my own PRIVATE ensuite in a guesthouse, loads of cool Cambodian food and street food, a gym workout, and a lot of water, beer and whiskey – all for 20 bucks! Even though it rained off and on throughout the day (it’s the rainy season), it was still an amazing day of exploring Sihanoukville and chilling with Cambodian locals.

Where I stayed: Mick & Craig’s
Mick & Craig’s is a relaxing guesthouse located 300 meters from the pier with friendly staff, great food, and very affordable private room. There’s an entire LIBRARY of books to choose from at Mick & Craig’s for your reading pleasure.
